PNoy Appoints Carpio-Morales as new Ombudsman

July 25, 2011

During his State of the Nation Address this afternoon, President Benigno Aquino III appointed retired Supreme Court Associate Justice Conchita Carpio Morales as the new Ombudsman replacing Merceditas Gutierrez. In appointing Morales, the President declared, “When the new Ombudsman, former Supreme Court Justice Conchita Carpio-Morales, takes office, we will have an honest-to-goodness anticorruption office, not one that condones the corruption and abuses in government.” The President also expressed his optimism that with Morales at the helm, we will see the filing of the first major case against the corrupt and their accomplices.
